Mephistopheles
Give it To Me
One Happy S.O.B.
Leave I must
The Promise Of Love

 

Mephistopheles (4:09)
(lyrics: Jay van Feggelen)

I was welded by the lord our maker
Gave me a heart of stone
Both my hands look like a kraken
And my body's fossil bone

My eyes can look right through ya,
And my voice can pierce your soul,
My mouth, if I am hungry
Can swallow suckers whole

You can call me Mephistopheles
Almost all you people do
Just call me, just call me Mephistopheles
And who the hell are you?

Some of you might feel fear for me
But I'm a gentleman at heart
Away with superstition
Dismiss you inner guard

My house is full of pleasures
They'll be yours if I say so
Subside and give me half a chance
I bid you welcome to my show

You call me Mephistopheles
Almost all you people do
Just call me, just call me Mephistopheles
And who the hell are you?

[solos]

May you step across my threshold
May you feel the heat inside
May you look at me and tremble
May you come to me tonight
No use tryin' to ward off evil
You can run but you can't hide

It's far away
But you won’t have to travel
I know the way over sand and gravel
I'll bring you down to a different level
Welcome! Hahahahah

For I am Mephistopheles
Mephistopheles
Just call me Mephistopheles
Call me Mephistopheles
You call me Mephistopheles

Give it to me (3:21)

(lyrics: Jay van Feggelen)

You gotta quite holdin’ down on me baby
Baby, baby you gotta give me more
But I know you got whole lot more in store for me
Baby give it to me

You’re a hell of a good looking woman
Only whackos disagree
But when it comes to making love
You're under lock and key

Take it easy, have a drink
And strip before my eyes
Do your thing you and
Let me brng you up to paradise

Baby, baby you won't let me pick your lock
Though I know you got whole lot more in store for me
Baby give it to me!
I’m in my prime, you know
And I’m running outta patience
Haven’t got time for platonic relations

Take it easy, have a drink
And strip before my eyes
Do your thing you and
Let me bring you up to paradise

Ease down on me babe
Exercise your thighs
Let’s do our thing
And let it bring us both to paradise

[solo]

Take it easy, have a drink
And strip before my eyes
Do your thing you and
Let me bring you up to paradise

Ease down on me babe
Exercise your thighs
Let’s do our thing
And let it bring us both to paradise
Ooohoh! You gotta give it to me, baby

Baby, baby you won't let me pick your lock
though I know you got a whole lot more in store for me
Baby give it to me!

I don’t want to push you darling
But it’s time you face the truth
'Cause I’m of a mind to leave you be
And put on my walking boots

Now if you don’t want me to leave you be
This is what you do:
Untangle those long legs of yours
And let me give my love to you

One Happy S.O.B. (3:52)
(lyrics: Jay van Feggelen)

(Hmmmm!)

Gimme a six-string, a beat and a bass,
Gimme a cold beer, or rather a case
Gimme a woman that's wild and free
And I'll be one happy S.O.B.

Gimme 'nough money for not necessarily mine
Gimme a good chance to wine and dine
Gimme a woman who's crazy for me
And I'll be one happy S.O.B.

I'll be as happy as a fool can be... really cool, oh
And if things don't work out the way I plan
You better believe I'll be grinning while I can

I got the gimme gimme fever
I want what I don't have
I got the gimme gimme fever
Lord, and don't you give me half

Gimme some fast wheels to gobble up the road
Gimme a vast Malibu abode
Gimme a woman riding on my knee
And I'll be one happy S.O.B.

Gimme the know-how to write a good song
Gimme the right way so I can't go wrong
Gimme a woman like a redwood tree
And I'll be one happy S.O.B.

I'd be as happy as a fool can be... really cool
Yet there ain't no icicles on me

I got the gimme gimme fever,
I want what I don't have
I got the gimme gimme fever,
Lord, and don't you give me half

[solo]

I'd be as happy as a fool can be
A cool kinda fool
Yet the fever still consuming me
I got the gimme gimme fever
I got the gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme...
I got the gimme gimme fever
I want what I don't have
I got the gimme gimme fever
And don't you give me half

I got the gimme gimme fever,
I want what I don't have
I got the gimme gimme fever
And don't you give me half

I got the gimme gimme fever
I got the gimme gimme fever
I got the gimme gimme fever

Leave I must (3:59)
(lyrics: Jay van Feggelen)

I won’t come back into your life so you don’t worry
And I won’t stand for the blame you put on me
I said goodbye to you babe, and I’m not sorry
Except for the time that it took to make me see

I just don’t care how you cope and I don’t worry, hah!
For far too long I let you bend and adjust the rules
I hoped your love and understanding you would give me
But you shed on me and said I was a fool

Now—I got so much to do
My new-found freedom is so precious
Now—I got so much to do
I feel I’m running out of time

I’d rather not remember how you made me crawl for you
Oh I’m on top of my own situation now
At last I’ve got you at a disadvantage
I went to hell and left and jumped your trap somehow

Now—I got so much to do
My new-found freedom is so precious
Now—I got so much to do
I feel I’m running out of time

I got my plans laid out
I’m on my way from rags to riches
I got my plans leid out
It’s gonna be an easy climb

[solo]

Now—I got so much to do
My new-found freedom is so precious
Now—I got so much to do
I feel I’m running out of time

I got my plans laid out
I’m on my way from rags to riches
I got my plans laid out
It’s gonna be an easy climb

Say 'sayo-nara' while I hit the street
This motherfucker's got what he needs
I’m free whoa yeah

Listen!
Say 'sayo-nara' while I hit the street
This motherfucker's got what he needs
I’m free

So it's bye bye baby
I won’t look back to see you eat my dust
And I won’t stay around to hear you curse my name
Leave I must
You know that as well as I do
Leave I must
You won’t see me again before dusk

The Promise Of Love (3:39)
(lyrics: Jay van Feggelen)

You might not know
But I've been trying to reach you
Every day and every night
I even wrote you a seven-page love letter
Blast my love outright

Days I've worked my hands to the bone
To keep you satisfied
Nights I lay awake, staring at the phone
My grudge intensified

Now you can stick it
Stick it where the sun don't shine

In the beginning it was easy to love you
As long as I held your man at bay
But then you started your Hollywood kissing
And you went back to him to stay

Days I've worked my hands to the bone
To keep you satisfied
Nights I lay awake, staring at the phone
My grudge intensified

Now you can stick it
Where the sun don't shine
The promise of love
Must be your favourite lie
Yeah, you can stick it
Where the sun don't shine
The promise of love must be your favourite lie

[solo]

Now you can stick it
Where the sun don't shine
The promise of love
must be your favourite lie
Yeah, you can stick it
Where the sun don't shine
The promise of love
Must be your favourite lie

You gotta admit that you tried to deny
That you where lying about biding your time
And mistifying
In view of the fact that I was trying to buy
time to make you mine
But let me tell you something else
That you don't know--I feel just fine
To be able to tell you to stick it
